Hot Video Alert: Mylène Farmer - Oui mais... non
Further proof that French singer Mylène Farmer is a Goddess - the brilliantly beautiful video for her new single, "Oui mais... non." A little bit Gaga-esque in concept, the Chris Sweeney-directed video features the ever gorgeous Farmer surrounded by a whole slew of costumed dancers. Ms. Farmer even busts out some fierce dance moves herself. The video, which premiered on November 16th comes out nearly a month after the single's digital release (on October 11th). It's set to be the lead single off of Farmer's forthcoming eighth studio album, Bleu Noir, which is due out in December. The song was co-written by Farmer and RedOne (who was a massive fan of the French artiste) and produced by the latter. Upon it's release in October, the song went straight to #1 on the French Digital Chart before dropping to #17 the following week. Despite having NO idea what she's saying (the title translates to "Yes...but no" I can't stop myself from loving this song. Music is really a universal language in and of itself, so who cares what language the lyrics are written in. Farmer's even found a fan in both Lady Gaga and Kylie Minogue, both of whom have publicly professed their adoration for the track. While I sincerely doubt Farmer will ever hit it big Stateside I would love to see her. She's such a brilliant and iconic artist. Everyone should know her name. "Oui mais... non" was remixed by Tomer G, Jeremy Hills, Klaas and Chew Fu. Click the video still below to be directed to the actual video. Universal France wouldn't let me embed it. Oh and check out the newly released video for a song called "Leila," also taken off of Bleu Noir. Not sure if this is the official next single or not but it's a beautiful track.
